    Ride On A Train.

    Today is like every other day. I board the train quickly-can't be late. I choose a seat near the back. Few sit there. The light is broken, but that's fine. I don't need a light today. Alone I sit, lost in my thoughts, swirling, swirling. ..A slight noise startles me back to...

    It's not a cliche. I believe God is working

    every moment and connecting things and people in our lives to come together for a purpose. We may not always know the reason but when we do get to discover it, it's amazing 💖

    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    Time is the greatest healer,

    it pushes you to comply because the temptation to resist or react in the presents is so real and forceful but if you let TIME have it's way solutions come your way,questions are answered and soon you will see why time is your best friend.
